A collection of some twenty-odd stories about our equine friends includes some well and some lesser known selections. Among the authors are Beth Brown, Stuart loete, Charlotte Edwards, Edward North Robinson, John Galsworthy, Mary O'Hara, John Steinbeck. Favorites appear in That Colt Pericles by Knibbs, The Gift by Steinbeck, My Friend Flicka by O'Hara, Tzagan by Wood. There is the horse who makes his little girl owner well, the not-to-be tamed Western Palomino, the down-and-out but not-for-gotten and fortunately found, former police horse Skipper, the enchanged Arabian horse of fantasy, the horse of the track. Sentimental chestnuts in this field abound and are doubtless pleasing to some palates, although this does not tote up to particularly vital fare. While containing a few of the same pieces, this does not stand up to A World of orses (p. 950, 1961) in scope or substance or spirit.
